Proof of God? You

Think about this...


Look up at the Sky at night. What do you see? Stars. Billions of Stars. Each of those Stars are Suns. Around all those Suns are Planets. Look at our Planet. It has been here for a very long time. Here we are, on one little corner, of one little Planet, in the vastness of the Universe. In all the time the Earth has been here, and in all that vastness of Space and Time, there is only, and has only been, and will only be, one YOU. That makes you the most important Person in the Universe.

Now think about this. Before you were, your Mom and Dad were. They were born. They grew up. They experienced all the good, bad, and ugly, that they did, and became the people they are. Then one day, they happened to be at the very precise time and place, at the same time and place, to meet. Of all the time and places, and all the billions of people, those two, came together at just the right time.

No matter what was happening in the Universe, or even on this little Planet, these two people came together. For a very specific time, they became one. Through all the time and biology, there was that perfect time for your Mother to Conceive. Through all the time and Biology, and all the risks of, and possibilities of, Pregnancy, you were Born into the World. Look in the Mirror. You are you. You have a certain Eye Color. Hair Color, Freckles or not. You are Male, Female, Tall, Short, Whatever makes you, you. You are a work of Art. You are Perfect.

Look at a Painting. It is Beautiful. Have you ever met the Artist? Did you ever look at a Painting and doubt that there was a Painter? Look at a Picasso and say, there is no Picasso. No. Of course not. The Painting itself is evidence that there was a Painter. Just like any other Work of Art, YOU are evidence that there was a Creator. You are Proof, there is a God.

Genesis 1:
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
We are created in the Imagine of God. Our Mind, Intelligence, Will, and Emotions, after God the Father. Our Bodies, this Fleshly Shell that enables us to walked around and interact with this Physical Realm, after Jesus, the Word that became Flesh {John 1:14} The Flesh of God for the remission of our Sins {Romans 8:3} And our Spirit, the real us, that will live on after the Flesh dies, after the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1, John 14, Romans 8} Three completely different beings, yet one.

When we fell from Grace, God said this..
 "And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:"{Genesis 3: 22}
We are made in the imagine of God, God gave us the ability to think like Him. Because of our disobedience, He could not longer come and meet with us Face to Face. But we are still His Imagine. We are still His Masterpiece.

The Psalmist wrote this..
 "For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!" {Psalm 139: 13-17}
Just think about these statements. "Thou hast covered me in my mother's womb." God knows who you are. The type of person you will become, and what you will do in Life itself, before your Mom even knows she is Pregnant with you. Romans 8 Declares
"For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified." {Romans 8: 29-30}
God foreknows who you are. He sets up a Plan and a Purpose for your life. Then He calls you to accept it or not. If you say yes, He prepares you. If you endure to the end, He will Glorify you along with Jesus Himself.

Because of this process,,"Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them." He forms you in a very specific way for a very specific reason. You were formed exactly the way God wrote you will be, in His Book.

Picture God sitting down at a blank Canvas. He says to Himself, this is going to be entitled "Peter." I will make him this tall. I will make his Eyes brown. Hair? Brown. I will give him a large build. Perhaps a happy little Birthmark over here. I will make him Strong Willed. He will be able to do this and that. He will be the one I call to....." then he puts His Brush to the Paint, and then to the Canvas. From a blank Canvas, I come into existence.

Jesus tells us..
"Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered." {Matthew 10: 29-30}
And again,,,
"Indeed, the hairs of your head are all counted. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows! " {Luke 12:7}
Not one Sparrow falls to the ground, translate, die, without God's Will that it does so. We are more valuable to God than many Sparrows. So much so He took the time to number our very Hairs on our Head. Which means?? Not one Hair will be lost without God's Will that it does so. God most likely numbered the Hairs, as He was placing them on your Head.

Some people love to believe, and would like you to believe as well, that we are all here by accident. That there was nothing, then all of a sudden, out of nowhere, without God of course, something just happened to be. They can't tell you what. But it was not God. No. Definitively not. Just because they cannot tell you what it was, they will argue til their death, God had nothing to do with it. Pretty silly I know.

But then they want you to believe, that following this mysterious first "something," ALL things, Plants Animals, Hot Blooded, Cold Blooded, Fish, Birds, Mosquitoes, People, and everything else, formed. Just cause. Then they look at self as simple Biology and say no big deal.

You can believe in that if you choose. However, I chose to believe in the more Logical possibility. That first something IS God. He formed all things. He Created me. Whenever one of these people tell me I'm a fool to believe in God, I tell them, they are a fool to believe that something came from NOTHING and all things were formed from that by nothing more than chance or happenstance. When they ask me for Proof that God exists, I tell them, Look in the Mirror.

Do you know Jesus as your Savior? Have you been adopted into the Family of God? If not, say this Prayer. Right now. Wherever you may be. Say it in your own words, and do not doubt in your heart. God will hear you. He will send the Spirit of Life to you. Let us Pray..

"Oh heavenly Father, Lord God. I am a sinner. I know this. I know there is nothing I can do to change that. But I know you can. I accept Jesus's sacrifice for me. I repent my sins. Please send the Spirit of Adoption into my life. Help me to get to know the real you. Save me. Please. In the name of Jesus, Amen!"

That's it. It really is that simple. Now go tell someone what you have just done. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." {Romans 10:9} You need to find a Church that God leads you to, and be Baptized the way Jesus said to be. You are now a Child of God. A new Creature. You "have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him." {Colossians 3:10}

If you want to tell me, or comment, question, give testimonials, or just say "Hi," the Email is opntalk@gmail.com

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen. {2 Corinthians 13}
